As you know, the well-respected DeShawn Snow was booted out of the cast for the second season of the Real Housewive's of Atlanta. The first season of ATL Housewive's was Bravo's 2nd highest rated show in the 'Housewives' franchise behind Orange County.
The main reason for the show's success was the hot mess of a cast led by NeNe Leakes, who I heard has signed another short-term lease for a mansion just for this season.
After DeShawn was dismissed for not being ghetto enough, rumors swirled about her replacement.
Well, those rumors have been laid to rest now. Hollywood Insider announced exclusively that former Xscape member Kandi Burrus will fill that role. On the surface, Kandi seems to be an odd fit for this cast because her life seems drama-free. Kandi is well-respected in the industry as a songwriter with 56 million records sold.
But it makes sense when you consider that Kandi is set to be wed this month to a guy whose life is full of drama. According to my source, he has 6 children who he's not supporting financially. Kandi also has a daughter with Block of Block Entertainment.
Back in January a source close to Tameka "Tiny" Cottle informed me that Tiny would be attending Kandi's wedding in March or April. At the time I tried to do a little research on Kandi's fiance, but I came up with nothing. So I forgot about them until today when I received the following email.
I know some of it is true, but I'm still blanking out names just in case they're innocent.
Read the email after the break...
A good friend of mine ________ gave me your info and said you needed to know this. I'm sure you know by now that Kandi Burrus is the newest member of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. They started filming today and Kandi Burrus is in fact not married to Shakespere as some are reporting but has a drug dealer/ boyfriend named "AJ". He recently moved into Kandi's house in Fayetteville and AJ has 6 kids and doesn't pay child support for neither one of them. He shows fake paycheck stubs (since he doesn't have a job) so he doesn't have to pay. Ask me how I know??? His ex-wife whom he just divorced last August, is my best friend's friend and they were together for 6 years. Her name is _______ and she used to be in the r&b singing group 'bella". (they have the cutest little 5 yr old son I've ever seen) He pays her no support nor alimony and even took her truck when they divorced she doesn't even have a car now but they were married in 2005 and divorced in 2008. This shit is about to hit the fan once everybody does their research on her and her new fiance (I heard he just proposed to her lol!) He is a big hoe in Atlanta and thats why ______ filed for divorce. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance I have hundreds of stories about him and he doesn't deserve to be on that show with all of the skeletons he has in his closet. He is a deadbeat dad and only got with Kandi for the fame and money.
By the way he sells weed lol! Remember where you heard it first!!! I have PLENTY of supporting evidence! I can't wait to hear what they say he does for a living!
SANDRA...ARE U SITTING DOWN FOR THIS ONE?...HE USED TO DATE YOUR GIRL AND KANDI'S BEST FRIEND TAMEKA "TINY' COTTLE FOR ABOUT 2 YEARS AND EVEN GOT INTO IT WITH T.I AT BENIHANA'S ONE NIGHT ALL WHILE HE WAS MARRIED TO _______!!! I'm sure she'll tell you ALL about it!!!
